Trail of Crumbsby Kim Sunée
“Kim Sunée takes us on a lyrical journey from Korea to New Orleans to the South of France. Along the way there are unforgettable portraits and a heartbreaking romance, but food is her touchstone and her passion. The descriptions on almost every page are mouthwateringly evocative, the recipes divine—she is the M.F.K. Fisher of her generation.”
- Julia Reed, journalist and author of South Toward Home and The House on First Street: My New Orleans Story
“A compelling, confessional memoir.”
“A satisfying blend of travelogue and cookbook... Her introspective prose conveys the uneasy limbo of a journey that is arduous and ongoing—but always delicious."
“Trail of Crumbs reminds me of what heavily costumed and concealed waifs we all are. Kim Sunée tells us so much about the French that I never learned in 25 trips to Paris, but mostly about the terrors and pleasure of that infinite octopus, love. A fine book.”
- Jim Harrison, author of The Raw and the Cooked and Legends of the Fall.
“Kim Sunée’s mysterious origins have given her both the exile’s curse and the exile’s charmed life. This coming of age memoir is brave, emotional, and gorgeously written. I’m already awaiting Volume Two.”
– Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun and A Year in the World
Everyday Koreanby Kim Sunée and Seung Hee Lee
“Kim Sunée and Seung Hee Lee have expertly deciphered Korean cooking for the uninitiated. I felt as if they were holding my hand as they guided me through the kitchen.”
- Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, author of A Tiger in the Kitchen and Sarong Party Girls
“A beautiful voyage through Korean cuisine, presented in a way that anyone would feel excited about attempting or adapting.”
- Micheal Gulotta, Chef proprietor, MOPHO and Maypop, New Orleans
“Fusion has been called the new f-word, yet Everyday Korean smartly blends the Western and Korean kitchens in a natural and provocative way.”
- Matt Robard, author of Koreatown: A Cookbook
A Mouthful of Starsby Kim Sunée
“Kim Sunée is one of the most compelling memoirists writing today, and on top of that, she is a gifted cook. I want to follow her everywhere she goes, reflect on every thought in this moving story, and make a meal of A Mouthful of Stars. I loved being immersed in the context of each recipe, and was impressed by how effortlessly Kim can transport dishes from near, far, and wide to her own kitchen and into ours.”
- Martha Rose Shulman, food columnist for the New York Times and author of The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking
“There is a big difference between traveling to escape and traveling to discover. A Mouthful of Stars is a book that shows the beauty of learning about yourself, the food you eat, the world around you, and the wonderful people at every stop. It’s a poignant voyage through the smart writings and wonderful recipes of Kim Sunée.
- Hugh Acheson, chef and author of A New Turn in the South
“A Mouthful of Stars will immediately draw you into Kim’s culinary journey through the stories she shares of cooks and how they connect with their food. Get ready to be transformed into her world of Flower and Ice, Down-and-Dirty Rice, Tispy Melons, and more. A Mouthful of Stars is a tasty and thoughtful combination of Zen and gourmet.”
- Sara Foster, chef and author of Sara Foster’s Southern Kitchen and The Foster’s Market Cookbook
